To add some details, the notation of "NP" as some say represents "nickel plated" may be recording the swords scabbard screws? Normally the blade proof page is the blade only but in this case the whole sword was returned to Wilkinsons. The screws are nickel plated showing no corrosion on themselves or surrounding brass. The brass scabbard replaced the leather/brass upon his promotion to field rank. Maybe if I look on and off enough something will jump out at me?
